People of Purpose

Connecting people to their unique human experience through Purpose.

Nov 13, 2021

Are you a fan of any team sports? Perhaps you have already watched one of the NBA games, or maybe a 90-minute football game in FIFA. What do you think makes a champion team? Is it the “superstar” players? Or have you been part of a sports team, a school club, a group project, or volunteer work? Do you remember what it felt like working with a team?

The saying “two is better than one” perfectly describes what it means to be in a group. Working together with your peers makes the work more efficient and effective. To top that, collaborating with other individuals gives you different perspectives and ideas that you might never think of yourself. But have you ever wondered how teams effectively work in organizations with thousands of employees? 

In this episode of People of Purpose, Tanur Badgley had the chance to sit with Leo Bottary, the founder and managing partner of Peernovation, LLC. Leo is the award-winning author of three books, including Peernovation: What Peer Advisory Groups Can Teach Us About Building High Performing Teams (2020). He is also a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator, podcaster, Rutgers University adjunct professor, and CEOWORLD Magazine Advisory Board Member and Opinion Columnist. They will discuss what’s Peernovation and how peer groups can make a difference to your organization.
